Christmas Day and what should arrive...my new project, a new Festka Scalatore.

I’ve been looking for a return to a lighter weight bike as an alternative to my Field and the Scalatore fitted the bill perfectly.

More details to come, but here’s some photos to start.

Looks nice but do you have a full length snap?

If I ever replace my cannondale frame, it will be with something like this. Straight round tubes, visible carbon layup, looks top :thumbup:

Ok, that's nice. Really interesting mix of carbon finishes. The bottom bracket looks solid, that's for sure.

Wow ! Very nice indeed.
Love the transparent aesthetics, kind of like a hybrid tube to tube-monocoque construction, like a ''trompe l'oeil''. Bravo !
